As Pleasant A Roy Rogers Film Ever Made
This is a veery good little Roy Rogers vehicle with all the pieces in place. By the way, this excellant print is the full movie and not the shorten TV print. Rogers and The Sons Of The Pioneers are musicians out of work looking to help beautiful young ingenue Helen Parrish keep a ranch for a baby she is guardian of, never explained as to why that is. Joan Woodbury brings a haughty turn to her small role as the wronged housekeeper in with villian Onslo Stephens and his crooked schemes. Roy, Gabby Hayes, Pat Brady, and Bob Nolan all get solo turns in the song dept. The film is very tightly paced and well made with a lot of familiar bit players you'll recognize from the Republic ast lists. It's not over the top and very good of kind. You'll like it. Enjoy.
